Finn is a street dog unlucky enough to draw the attention of psychopathic brutes in the township of Valhalla Park in South Africa. Having nothing better to do, the young thugs caught Finn, sawed off one leg, then hanged him and while he was choking to death, threw stones at him. A brave passing motorist saw what was going on, rescued Finn and rushed him to Imagine Animal Dreams (IAD), a small volunteer-run animal shelter that operates in the remote Kraaifontein area of the Western Cape.
By the time Finn got there it was almost too late but Cecelia Jacobs, the founder of IAD, fought for his life and after intensive care, Finn is now a healthy happy three-legged dynamo.
Finn is one of 40 dogs and 30 cats that Cecelia cares for, supporting their upkeep and veterinary bills from her work as a pharmacy assistant. Her most immediate problem is finding money to buy a new engine for her aging pick-up truck. Without it she can’t ride to the rescue of the hundreds of street dogs that live in nearby poor areas.
As animal lovers, we can never stand idly by when dogs are in need. Together we will provide the financial means to get Cecelia’s dog-rescue vehicle fixed and ready to help her provide dogs and cats a haven from torture.

It’s good to know that people like Cecelia exist and that because of her Finn, the three-legged dynamo, has a chance of happiness. The world must sometimes seem inexplicably cruel to dogs, who only want to be with humans as our friends.
Please show Finn there are good people in the world who despise torturing animals: give generously so that he and his buddies will never face torture or hunger again.
